I’m relatively new in k-pop and I don’t understand some things. For example: the training period. I’ve read an article about the schedule for an ordinary trainee.

 

Don Lee is an ex- trainee of JYP Entertainment. On his YouTube Channel he spoke about the schedule for an ordinary trainee. (Donleebaby, 2012) A day at JYP starts at 10am. For two hours trainees practice their dancing or singing skills. At 12 o’clock they eat lunch. In the afternoon the classes start.These classes are for singing, dancing, rapping, Chinese, instrument lessons, acrobatics, acting and Korean. These classes are between 1 and three hours long. Every trainee has their own schedule. At 6pm it is dinner time and after that trainees practice till 10pm. After that they are free to go, but most of them keep practicing more if they have a show coming up. They do this 6 days a week. At the end of every month there is an evaluation to see if trainees are improving. Trainees are allowed to have some free time. They are allowed to go to the movies and sometimes JYP would take the trainees to a concert. 

 

“competitive team orientated workplace. You are simultaneousl y working with each other to get better, but you also try to outmatch each other. [...] I do not want to leave you with the image that it was a cutthroat competition. It was a pre tty nice place to practice actually. People there are genuine nice and if you ask for help, they would gladly help. And they will not sabotage you or backstab you. ” (Don Lee, 2012)  source: (pg.34)

 

The girls/boys  don’t go anymore to school? I mean, look at their schedule (classes for singing,dancing, rapping, acting … all day). They don’t have “normal” classes? Even if you attend an arts high school you still follow a program like others, you still have math, physics, chemistry etc.(not so many classes though)  This looks  more like a school of performing, so they expect young trainees to drop out school when they sign a contract with them? I guess big companies like SM, YB or JYP recruit many people but not all of them make a debut.

 

Do you know K-idols who attend or graduated from university ?

" New recruits are expected to keep their bodies fit. Guys are expected to get abs and girls are supposed to lose weight. In the case of Girls Generation it was revealed that the girls only eat 800 calories per day. (“Girls Generation diet”, 2009) In comparison a normal girl that age should eat about 1800 calories per day. In the training process the trainees are also expected to know about current situations in the world. For that reason reading a newspaper daily is mandatory "

I guess it differs for every trainee? 

For eg, 15& and some of the GOT7 boys still go to high school. 

 

 

Apparently, for JYPE, they have to maintain a certain grade in HS to stay as trainee in the academy.

 

So, I see that Don's schedules don't seem to fit that criterion. Was he attending school when he was a trainee in JYPE>

youtube make it more time efficient..you might have to ask him more and detailed...and you will manage to get one person opinion..

as for education, the person or the foster person would make the trainee have some a deal so they could have make him attend/take a class...

 

have you heard about a professor that take a class for a/some 2PM member...yep..it was some of scandal that occurs and down about education. 

 

if you want some experience, you can try a home schooling way or extension class or night class...uni and some school have their own educational deal for the people that didn't have much time

Like Don said, each trainee's scheds are different. His would be quite full time despite him going to Uni at the same time since he's from the US. Korean trainees still go to school (mostly performing arts schools- suzy, lim, 15&, yugyeom all go to the same arts school).

Korean trainees' scheds would probably have have a time designated for school.

I also heard that to stay a trainee in JYP you have to maintain sa certain grade in school or you'll be kicked out.

During WG's peak during Tell Me, Yenny was #1 in her class, and #9 in her whole school. She went to Uni afterwards.

If it's the scandal I'm thinking of, I'm pretty sure that was a ZE:A member.  While Taecyeon was enrolled in school and hasn't really been attending classes, he was just marked absent.

 

EDIT: what I remember about ZE:A and school http://netizenbuzz.b...-professor.html vs. what I remember about 2PM and schoohttp://netizenbuzz.b...at-college.html

I think it's very long and harsh. And with those schedules you basically don't have any free time. I mean.. no time to play games, go out to the bar, practice any other hobbies etc..
